Eye allergies are caused by the same irritants that cause sneezing and a runny nose and other symptoms. An allergic reaction causes your eyes to overreact to a substance that is perceived as harmful and result in red, watery, itchy eyes. The most people are allergic to dust and their eyes react by excessive production of tears and mucus. that is harmless to the other individuals. Eye allergies also can be caused by cosmetics or eye drops, used to treat dry eyes. Some people are allergic to preservatives, so you might consider using preservative-free products.. Eye allergies are mostly caused by airborne allergens. Other causes, like food allergies, normally do not affect the eyes. Besides this, allergies might cause other problems like conjunctivitis and asthma. Symptoms of allergies are easy to identify most of the time. Red, watery or itchy eyes, runny nose, headache are the most common signs of allergies.
In order to avoid an allergic reaction, you need to avoid sources of it. If you are allergic to dust, keep your home free from dust and dander.
